The University Press of Mississippi's Interview series offers a wealth of information on contemporary writers and filmmakers. This latest installment, devoted to director Martin Scorsese, effectively mixes in-depth, question-and-answer interviews, often from film journals, with narrative profiles from the mainstream press. The combination works well, with the more structured biographical information from the profiles serving as narrative support for the freewheeling answers in the interviews. The chronological arrangement allows the reader to watch Scorsese's distinguished career develop from film to film, as most of the pieces originally appeared in conjunction with the opening of a film. There is some repetition from chapter to chapter, as the interviews appear unedited, but most readers will use this volume for research or browsing. A valuable resource for contemporary film collections. Ilene Cooper --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
